Synopsis by Clarke Fountain

This Russian film accurately retells the famous Hans Christian Anderson story about a mermaid who saves a young prince from her sisters death-calls, and falls in love with him. After many trials, the prince is able to live and love, and the mermaid is freed to walk on land, but the prince marries a land princess, and the mermaid walks alone.
